Roseburg High School senior and Umpqua Community College commit, Sam Minyard, received a $1,000 scholarship from the Roseburg High School class of 1968.
Alumni of the Class of '68 came to present Minyard with a novelty check and hang up a plaque honoring former RHS automotive instructor Marvin "Marv" Wolf.
Wolf's daughters, Peggy and Donna, were also in attendance to talk about the start of automotive education at Roseburg High School. Donna Wolf was a member of the class of '68.
The plaque in honor of Wolf states it is dedicated "for his 40+ years of dedication of creating and furthering the Roseburg High School Automotive Program starting in the early 1960s."
Wolf started teaching at RHS during the 1957-58 school year. He later taught at UCC, which is why the scholarship is for RHS seniors who will continue their education at the community college.
The scholarship was made possible thanks to donations by the alumni and leftover funds from the reunion.
Alumni Carol Johnson told the automotive students there's a good chance another scholarship will be available for a student next year.
